Going Away For Long

Oh my goodness. The coming month will be very sad for me, my sister’s going on a mission trip for a month in Cambodia with a team of missionaries. She’ll be doing stuff that she loves over there while we will all miss her here in the Philippines. Anyway, she has not yet packed her things despite that her flight is scheduled 4 days from now. She doesn’t have a luggage bag yet since this is her first try to go somewhere for a really long time. I checked back at lazada’s FB page and saw that they have awesome discounts of bags. Great deals, indeed.

Anyway, I’ll really miss my sister. Cambodia’s still in Asia and there’s the Internet but the thing is she wouldn’t be online so often since she will be most probably going to be so busy for a month. She said they’ll be touring and helping out at churches and well, more of going on remote places and conferences with some Cambodian ministers. That would be awesome, I just hope we won’t miss her too much.

The twilight of Twilight: Vampires and Werewolves in the Bible

While scourging through webpages after webpages finding something to amuse and take away my body, soul and spirit from boredom zone, I found this very interesting blog entry from soulblindministry.com. It never crossed my lazy mind that vampires and werewolves possibly were based in Biblical metaphor. Below is an excerpt from the entry.

BusinessWeek claims that Stephenie Meyer’s latest movie installment of her romantic story, about a sunlight challenged boy, and his shirtless dog-frienemy, whom fight to be the first to (wedding) ring a Bell(a), has reached an all time high in box office sales! With a whopping grand total of $138.1 million dollars in its opening weekend, alone! That makes it the 5th best opening weekend on record!!! With that much scratch lying around, maybe they can now afford to buy a lot of shirts for the Oregon based wolf pack, since they seem to go through them like falling leaves in autumn!

I didn’t put the whole article here since it’d be best if you can read the whole post on the site. Anyway, as I’ve read the entry, it’s awesome that someone thought about the whole thing where werewolves and vampires can reflect humanity and our great need of something unachievable by our efforts alone.

Now I realize it’s a good practice at times to think of unusual things because there comes discoveries.

End of Vacation

That is for both my brother and my cute little chubby sister who took the joy and liberty of doing nothing for a week free of assignments, projects and lectures from teachers.

It was due to the bad weather and the floods all over the metro that classes resumed only this week. Public schools and gymnasiums were used as evacuation centres up to the present. Good for our city, even though our municipal was submerged to half of the flood but after a week everything got back together like nothing happened.

Our house was not flooded our street bore an instant river with floating unspeakable matters for two days. We weren’t able to go out of the house; it was like we were stuck in an island. Thankfully it subsided after some 2 to 4 days of strong rain.

ImageAnyway, now that they’re back to school I thought it’d be a good thing to give my sister a little present. She’s always borrowing stuff from me ever since school year started so I guess the gift’s purpose is also to prevent her from borrowing bags from me. I think she will love this very cute bag I saw from this site, the bag’s pictured on the left.

It’s a strawberry looking bag that very much will fit the little strawberry purse I bought her from Baguio back last summer. What do you guys think?

Bookworm-ing

I’m not really a fan of story books (and what I mean by “story books” would be the novel genre like Twilight, Harry Potter and The Other Books, Missing Series of Meg Cabot, and John Irving’s A Widow For One Year. For one reason, it does not interest me as much as non-fictional knowing that I can follow a good story on TV and cinema (or torrent), fully-imaged and excellently illustrated complete with sound and visual effects).

Since I’ve got a couple of 3 to 4 purchased books from Booksale since last year, I guess I can purchase one or 2 more. Maybe bookworm-ing over novels after dipping for quite a very few times in 6 years is a good idea, just to get my imagination up and running not only for reality-idealization but also for the opposite.

Does anybody recommend a good novel?
